We <EANNER^> Vol. XXVII, Issue 5 California Baptist College November 10, 1981 BSU, Socratics Lose Charters Appeals Go Before Board By Joe Pinkerton Assistant Editor "We did what we had to do." stated Martha South, chairman of the ASB Activities Board, concerning that organization's decision to revoke the charter of two of the most prominent clubs on campus.tAfter what was termed as "a lot of discussion" the charters of the Socratic Club and the Baptist Student Union were revoked by a voice vote of the board's bi-monthly meeting on Nov. 2. The Activities Board, which consists of: one representative from each class, one representative from each chartered club or organization, one married student representative from Lancer Arms, the ASB Activities Director, and a representative from the cheerleading squad, is given the authority by the ASB Constitution to approve and revoke clubs' and organizations' charters. The decision was made to revoke the charters when it was found that neither the Socratic Club nor the B.S.U. had sent a representative to any Activities Board meetings this year despite being sent notices after each missed meeting. Article 4, Section 6, Clause 3, Sub- Clause A of the ASB Constitution states, "A club or organization shall be defined as delinquent and its charter shall be revoked when: It has failed to be represented in any three Activities Board meetings, or two consecutive Activities Board meetings in one semester. After seeing this, many board members felt they had no choice but to revoke the charters. "The rules were very plainly written and we hadn't seen hide nor hair of them all year." said one representative on the board. Besides no longer being a recognized club on campus loss of the charter takes away the club's representation on the Activities Board, coverage and publicity in the college yearbook and newspaper and the right to use college facilities. Both clubs were expected to appeal the decision to the Judicial Board on Monday, Nov. 9; but at the time of press the results from these appeals were not yet available. Dr. Wayne Swindall, advisor of the Socratic Club, when asked about future plans, said the club intends to abide by all rules of the school, however, Swindall stressed, "We'll keep functioning regardless. If we have to, we'll publish our own newspaper and yearbook. We're the hardest working club on campus and all our members are dedicated." Swindall wonders if the decision will hinder the efforts of the Socratic Club to bring special speakers on campus. A project the club had been involved in for some time. Swindall also questioned the Activities Board practice of sending the absentee notices to the advisors instead of the club officers." They had a list of our officers and the officers are the ones responsible for attending the meetings." Regarding the clubs appeal Swindall simply stated. "I hope it is remembered when the appeal is made that the weightier matter of the law is justice, mercy and faithfulness." Finally . . . Swindall posed a technical question, "If a class officer failed to attend two consecutive meetings would his or her entire class be ostracized from the rest of the school? Would the entire class be taken out of the yearbook? See Charters, page 2 Yule Set for Dec. 3 What comes in December besides Santa Claus?|If you guessed the annual CBC Yule, you got it. The traditional event will be held this year at the beautiful Balboa Pavillion overlooking scenic Newport Beach on Thursday, December third. Picture taking, which costs five dollars, will begin around 6:30 and the Yule is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m.. This years theme will be "Christmas by the Sea." The Yule is a formal Christmas banquet some what like a high school prom. Many students feel that the Yule is the highlight of the entire year. In the past it has been held at the Disneyland Hotel and the L.A. Hilton. Entertainment has included Isaac Airfright and David Niece. This year's entertainment will be provided by Steve Archer of the "Archers." One highlight will be the crowning of Mr. and Miss CBC. Four nominees of each set are selected by the Senior Class, with the basis for selection being overall contribution to the school. The entire school will then vote for Mr. and Miss CBC on December 1 and 2. Other traditions of Yule include the giving of Yule Logs and keepsakes. The Yule Logs which are a bundle of twigs wrapped in a ribbon may be used to communicate many things. An entire log, given to your date, means love forever. A broken log means . . . well we all know what that means. The keepsakes are also very special and can be kept as momentos for years to come. Last year they were ornaments embossed with the event and the date. Tickets for this very special event went on sale Monday at 11 a.m. If you haven't already gotten yours, the ASB suggests you rush to the ASB office and get in line as good seats are very limited. Tickets are $12.50 per person and singles are encouraged to attend. Donna Nobles, ASB president, suggests that groups would be fun.
